Activities for the 'Easter holidays'

Happy Easter!


Feels a bit weird saying that when we've already been off for 2 weeks, but it is technically the Easter holidays! I hope you've still managed to keep your brain active during this time - I've seen some of your work that you've been uploading to ClassDojo, well done! As it's the holidays, and as Mr Tucker's letter said, I'm not going to be setting any actual work for these two weeks but I have put together a range of different activities that might help you be creative and imaginative. If you want to do some work, then have a look back at the previous weeks and the 'Learning Links'. Keep checking back at the 'Learning Links' too - I will keep adding to them as I find new websites and links for you.


I do have a challenge for you - please can you all send me a photo of something you are really proud of that you have done recently. It could be a piece of work, some baking, an impressive piece of art or a video of a sporting triumph. I'll compile them and put them up on here to show off how amazing we all are.


Enjoy the sunshine - remember sun cream too!

Eat lots of chocolate - remember to exercise too!

Keep happy and healthy - remember to be nice to everyone else too!


Power of Kindness - can you do a kind thing every day this month?!

Some of them are a bit tricky to do during this time, but there are a few you can do in the garden and on a walk.

Some riddles to challenge you and everyone else!
